The authors cover all the issues involved in running small groups: ways to begin, student-led seminars, groupwork, student participation and responsibility, evaluation, written material, and expressing feelings. Whether one is new to teaching and eager to develop good strategies, or more experienced and looking to expand an established repertoire, this handy guide offers plenty of rewarding suggestions.

Excerpt

The original edition of 53 interesting things to do in your seminars and tutorials was published in a series called ‘Interesting ways to teach’. It was written by Sue Habeshaw, Graham Gibbs and Trevor Habeshaw – all of them experienced teachers – and published by their company, Technical and Educational Services. The book proved popular amongst peers in post-compulsory education and ran to several editions.

Now that the original authors have retired from teaching, we are very pleased to have acquired from them the rights to this and other titles from that series. Much of the original material remains fresh and helpful. The text has, however, been revised and updated where appropriate. This task has been performed by Hannah Strawson. In two places (items 35 and 49), the original text has been replaced wholesale.
